  • THE DETAILS
    New Life Baptist Church is in the process adding a 2,000-square-foot addition to its existing building on South Dupont Highway.
    The expanded structure, which is located next to its sanctuary building, will provide the church with extra Sunday school classroom space and room for the congregation’s Wednesday night children’s programs for both elementary students and teens, according to Pastor Troy Lavallee.
    The project is the first phase of a larger expansion that will included an extension to the current sanctuary in next five to 10 years.
     
    THE PROGRESS
    The foundation and wood work for the new expansion were completed by the end of May, with work beginning on the walls and roof last weekend.
    Because the project is an expansion of an existing building, plumbing work is not needed, Lavallee said.
    Warfel Construction Company Inc., is working with the church to have the building completed by the end of June, and has also worked with the congregation to reach a reasonable price tag for construction, Lavallee said.
    “It’s been a vision we’ve had for years that the congregation has gotten behind,” the pastor said.
    New Life Baptist Church is the meeting place for 55 members, but interest in the elementary and teen youth groups has been outgrowing the current space available, which is why the church is working to raise money to continue its expansion projects, he said.
    “We have an older congregation that’s involved in the future and now we’re training the younger generation in the gospel,” Lavallee said. “They’re the future of our church.”
